Pizzelles are thin, waffled Italian cookies with beautiful patterns created using a specially designed mould.



  1. In a bowl, combine the almond powder and flour. Set aside.
  2. In another bowl, combine the remaining ingredients with a whisk until smooth. Stir in the dry ingredients until just moistened.
  3. Preheat the pizzelle iron. For each pizzelle, use about 1 tbsp (15 ml) of batter (or follow the manufacturer’s instructions). Close the device and cook for 1 minute or until lightly golden brown. Remove the pizzelles with tongs and cool on a wire rack.
  4. The pizzelles will keep in an airtight container for 2 weeks at room temperature or 3 months in the freezer.


If desired, dip the pizzelles in tempered milk chocolate and sprinkle with finely crushed toasted almonds. Chocolate-coated pizzelles will keep for about 6 weeks in an airtight container.
